Watch the second part of this webinar series delivered in conjunction with our special guest from Auditel on a step by step guide to becoming Carbon Neutral.

Please feel free to download the slides here.

Organisations embarked on the journey towards verified carbon neutrality (PAS 2060) must develop and implement a Carbon Footprint Management Plan.

This must include a process for periodic review of performance against the plan and for implementing corrective action to ensure targets are achieved.

Organisations must provide sufficient resources to achieve the Carbon Footprint Management Plan. The frequency of assessing performance against the plan should be commensurate with the timescale for achieving carbon neutrality.

To be successful, the Carbon Management Plan must demonstrate emission reductions, either a reduction in the total amount of carbon emitted (in absolute terms) or a reduction in carbon intensity (in relative terms). In the case of the latter, GHG reductions must be greater than that for the region in which the organisation operates.

Your host, David McDonald from Auditel discusses:

  • PAS 2060 plan guidance
  • Examples of reduction measures
  • Producing the business case
  • How to measure and verify performance
